New York: Despite eight years of separation, a marriage to Jennifer Garner and three children, Ben Affleck has admitted he still keeps in contact with his ex-fiancee, Jennifer Lopez.

It’s been nearly a decade since the rise and fall of the infamous couple known as Bennifer, but the actor only has kind words to say about his former partner.

“We don’t have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice, but we do have the kind of relationship where there’ll be an e-mail saying, ‘Oh, your movie looks great’,” the New York Post quoted him as telling The Hollywood Reporter.

“I remember when she got ‘American Idol’, I said: ‘This was really smart. Good luck.’ I touch base. I respect her. I like her.

“She’s put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I’m really pleased to see her successful,” he added.
